bad sector on C drive

  canard 13:20 26 Nov 06

Scan disc has found and fixed 16 faults on disc drive. Rescanning has not found any/ more trouble. Is this dire/sign of disc coming to end of life or will my disc drive continue to function? Please advise.

I'd advise you to back up the contents of the drive and prepare for a failure. The thing is, it could fail at any time - might be soon or it might be in quite a while. Either way, if Scandisk finds errors on a disc it's not in perfect working order anymore so you shouldn't store anything valuable on it.
